    I figured I would chiim in on this thread. I am fairly new to android, but feel like a have a relatively good handle on the android OS system, however my point may be mute. I lik to conserve battery life just as much as the next person, but my thoughts on this discussion pertain to the use of excess data while said apps are either runing in the background and/or cached. Becausee of this reason is why I would like to A) be able to "exit" and therefore close an app or B) use a task killer. Of course if I had unlimited mobile broadband then I wouldn't be so concerned about "data waste", but I would still be concerned about battery life. Take it is on the noob if there is something i am missing here since not only am I new to the forum, but android as well.

    When the app running in background, will they consume more battery? such as some services may always waiting for events, I guess...

    And also I tried some of the task killers, that it seems the task can not be killed completely. It seems android system forbid developers to do so.

    Hmm... the proper solution is for Google to design the OS in such a way that once an app is terminated it STAYS terminated. This is one thing I really hate about Android. Though, as of now, it doesn't seem that Task killers are effective in HC+.

    Have you thought about disabling background data? It really helps.

    A few weeks ago after going over and reading this thread and some information from it, I stopped using (as a test) any task killer on my Wi-Fi Xoom (Running ICS 4.0.4 NON rooted). It is extremely stable, and will release memory as described when it ( the O/S ) deems it ok to put the task in the background. Battery life is unaffected, and memory quite literally takes care of itself.
    I will tell anyone that asks, after running a myriad of flavors of WinOs's over the years on different machines, it was a leap of faith to let Android have control. It was well woth the leap.
    Just my 2 cents worth.
    I hope my experience helps.

    very good example about your mom yelling. That's what android exactly does.....it just turns off the "bloody lights" when not in use, but keeps them around.....it doesn't remove the bulbs from their holders and put them away in the drawer.........lolz.

    Ok, an update on my WiFi Xoom. Still not using any task killers. I.C.S. takes care of itself. Memory is always there. Battery life is always there. Leave the task killers off of especially I.C.S.
    I also have an HTC Inspire running GB. I do have a task killer on it, but rarely use it. ICS seems better at handling things, but GB holds it's own. Hope this helps.
